    Default Weirdest Name For Male Fragrances

    I've recently come across some pretty strange cologne/aftershave/eau de toilette names recently.

    One that caught my attention is called "NYPD" ... that's right: New York Police Department. I'm a uniformed patrol officer and the last thing I want to smell like is a cop. Our uniforms are polyester, they're hot and don't breath, the utility belt, vest, "commando sweater" etc. are HOT and we sweat a lot. Who want's to wear a scent called "NYPD"? What's next? "LAFD"?

    Then there is a male fragrance called - get this: "Dalai Lama." Do Tibetan Buddhist monks smell good? Maybe the house is putting out a 'Nobel Prize Winner' series ... if that's the case, can we expect to see "Bishop Desmond Tutu" in a bottle too?

    Here's one more: "Cockpit." Hmmmm. Sounds like a gay XXX porn flick. I can imagine the advertising: "Wear this scent and they'll wanna slide into your cockpit..."

    Can you share with us some of your favorite names???

    I can't ever say Musc Ravageur without a ridiculously borderline racist thick french accent.
    But the weirdest name for a cologne I've ever seen is the ever elusive Cumming by Alan Cumming.

    It's also a 'MEGA SPRAY COLOGNE'

    At least the dudes abs aren't the backdrop of the bottle like Fierce.

    "Joop Homme: Very Sexy In Pink" is the scent I almost passed on because of the name.

    What the Pink bottle and Pink in the name have to do with a leather flanker of Joop, I do not know.

    Nearly as bad was "Sexual".

    And I suppose Liz Taylor's "Passion for Men" could have been better named.

    ^^ Yes, 'Fat electrician' cracks me up also. I dread to think what the bottle looks like. The Buddhist monk probably doesn't smell all that bad, incense and all that.

    "ON EL" by J del Pozo. Not so much a weird name, just strangely nondescript in my opinion (even though the actual fragrance is a decent one, its name doesn't seem to neither do any favor to it and nor even negatively describe it).

    This one makes sense to me because it refers to one of the original strains of cannabis, the Hindu Kush kind, and the variants that have Afgan names. The "Black" is of course the color of the juice and the fact that hashish as well is very dark.

    EldO's names are just offputish: Putain des Palaces, Fat Electrician, Charogne, Divine Closeted Queen, Secretions Magnifiques... it all reeks an excessive flamboyant attitude - as a matter of fact, gay stereotypes my gay friends hate.

    I won't even look at ElDO because of the intentional coarseness of their names. I don't understand that kind of marketing at all, but evidently it appeals to some. NARS makeup has a similar issue. Annoying and without class.

    Padparadscha is actually a Sinhalese word meaning "lotus flower." Commonly that word describes the rarest and most valuable color a sapphire can come in: a soft pinkish orange. Most people think sapphires (corundum crystal) come only in shades of blue, but in fact they come in many colors (except red, because red corundum is called ruby). I know this because I studied gemology.

    Must be joking, they can't sell that in the UK with that name!

    Mitsubishi imported a model originally called "Pajero" to Argentina. "Pajero" means "wanker". Who could possibly buy a car named Mitsubishi Wanker? In this case...

    (At the office, rather formal place, let's say, Lloyd's)

    Secretary (good looking girl): "Smells fine, is that you?"

    Boss: "Yes, it is me"

    Secretary: "What is it?"

    Boss: "Shagya, by Parfums de Marly"

    OK, within weeks the boss is fired due to sexual harassment.

    Same with "Arso"...
